There’s nothing more exciting than getting your first bike. It gives children independence and gets them outside into the great outdoors. When your child first starts their two-wheeled adventures, they’ll need a suitable kids’ bike, and Carrera’s range of Cosmos kids’ bikes is the best place to start. With options for first-time riders through to 7 years of age, each bike is designed to be light and easy to use, making it as easy as possible for your little one to learn key riding skills.

Carrera Cosmos Balance Bike – 12-inch Wheel (First Bike)

Balance bikes have quickly become one of the most popular ways to teach a child to ride a bike – and for good reason! As the name suggests, they help teach a child balance and that’s why they’re kept as simple as possible with no saddle or drivetrain.

As you’d expect, the Carrera Cosmos balance bike benefits from a market-leading design and comes with components specially designed for toddlers. Every aspect of the bike is carefully designed, including a lightweight frame that’s easy to control and manoeuvre, an adjustable brake lever, and a lightweight, one-piece, Carrera-designed handlebar with narrow grips which is perfect for kids’ hands.


  • Lightweight aluminium frame is easy to control and can handle any tumbles, plus it features a cool new design that your little one will love.
  • A mini V-brake helps bring your little one to a safe stop.
  • Kids’ saddle and an adjustable seatpost that can be altered for the perfect fit.
  • Whether it’s smooth tarmac or adventures at the local park, air-filled tyres ensure a smooth ride.
  • Benefits from an adjustable brake lever and a lightweight, one-piece handlebar with narrow grips which is specially designed for smaller hands.
